Worst Tweet of the year.

Yeah, those people who jumped out of the WTC, forced to choose between jumping to their deaths and the horrible prospect of being burned alive just found “Al-Q” to be a laugh out loud riot that sunny morning of 9/11/2001.  Attackerman is an idiot.  Unfortunately, the current administration is full of people who share his worldview.

But being shot by one was apparently ok.  Or at least massively ironic, on a universal scale.

Don’t Jump to Conclusions

President Barack Obama said Friday the entire nation is grieving for those slain at Fort Hood, and he urged people not to jump to conclusions while law enforcement officers investigate the shootings.

Obama met Friday morning with FBI Director Robert Mueller and other federal leaders to get an update on what they’ve learned. Thirteen people were killed and 30 others injured in the shooting rampage at the Texas Army post on Thursday. The suspected shooter is an Army psychiatrist; his motive remains unclear.

“We don’t know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts,” Obama said in a Rose Garden statement otherwise devoted to the economy.

“the Cambridge police acted stupidly”

The President acknowledged his friendship with Mr Gates and admitted that he did not know the full facts of the incident.

But he added: “I think it’s fair to say: number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and number three – what I think we know separate and apart from this incident – is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that’s just a fact.”

I think it’s time for a poll.  I know I only have 2 readers, but play along with me here:

The Texans win, of course.

How often do you get to read the words “extremely pissed off” in a news story – even for a little local paper?  Be sure and read the entire article – it’s quite funny – especially the “beer making you bullet proof” part.

It was, of course, a favorite mantra of the anti-war left – “No Blood For Oil!”.  International ANSWER, code pink, Cindy Sheehan (she who has morphed from useful idiot to just plain old idiot – now that a Democrat is in the Whitehouse) – they were all there criticising the war in Afstan and Iraq, screaming about Halliburton, calling Bush a war criminal, whatever.  Today, somehow the anti-war causes are relegated to the back burner, and we have no more grim milestone watches in the mainstream media – not even any real ackowledgements that the deadliest month of the Aftan conflict for US troops occurred on Obama’s watch.  And Cindy Sheehan sits all alone outside Martha’s Vineyard, wondering what happened to the media that couldn’t get enough of her when she was hounding Bush.  Mysteriously, the media has now decided that it’s time for Cindy to just shut up and move on.

Now we know what trading blood for oil really looks like.  It looks like Gordon Brown and British Petroleum making a deal for the release of a mass murderer in exchange for sweetheart trade deals with Libya.

The British government decided it was “in the overwhelming interests of the United Kingdom” to make Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi, the Lockerbie bomber, eligible for return to Libya, leaked ministerial letters reveal.

Gordon Brown’s government made the decision after discussions between Libya and BP over a multi-million-pound oil exploration deal had hit difficulties. These were resolved soon afterwards.

The letters were sent two years ago by Jack Straw, the justice secretary, to Kenny MacAskill, his counterpart in Scotland, who has been widely criticised for taking the formal decision to permit Megrahi’s release.

So, they’ve been working on this for at least 2 years.  One has to wonder whether al-Megrahi really was terminally ill – or whether it was , as has been suggested, all just a big rollicking hoax.

JUSTICE secretary Kenny MacAskill was last night under pressure to reveal more details of the medical evidence that led to the release of the Lockerbie bomber, after it emerged that only one doctor was willing to say Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi had less than three months to live.

Labour and Conservative politicians have demanded the Scottish Government publish details of the doctor’s expertise and qualifications, amid suggestions he or she may not have been a prostate cancer expert.

The parties have also raised questions over whether the doctor was employed by the Libyan government or Megrahi’s legal team, which could have influenced the judgment.

But the listening only happens, apparently, if you say what the presenters want to hear.  Otherwise, they take their microphone and go home.

Bush-Hitler comparison

Give up?  One is a horrible, racist defamation of the PotUS, while the others merely speak truth to power.  Or something.  After 8 years of demonizing Bush in any and every way possible – now the left gets all weepy because Obama gets the same treatment.  And the Joker parody of Bush?  Published in Vanity Fair about 1 year ago. Is it disrespectful to the office – I suppose so.  But now is a strange time to be worried about that after what was done to Bush.  And Cheney.  And Rice.  What’s even funnier is the shrieking from the left about how racist the Joker parody is.  Sorry, folks – that’s just crap.  Obama is the PotUS (no thanks to me, but that’s another story), and criticism of all kinds come with the job.  The fact that enough people are worried about the socialist direction of his agenda is just starting to find voice – and the voice is going to build in timbre until it’s deafening.  Obama and his legion of sycophants better get used to it – because it’s going to get way worse before the reality that he’s a 1 term wonder finally sinks in.  That’s when the unfounded screams of “racism” will be loudest – right before Obama packs his bags and heads home.  No, it’s not racism to criticise the black PotUS – and if conservatives let the Democrats get away with it – well, you get what you deserve, right?

UPDATE:

Apparently depicting the President as a socialist is “mean spirited and dangerous“.  I can’t seem to find any instances of Mr. Hutchinson decrying the demonization of Bush – but I’m sure he did.  Really.

“Depicting the president as demonic and a socialist goes beyond political spoofery,” says Hutchinson, “it is mean-spirited and dangerous.”

“We have issued a public challenge to the person or group that put up the poster to come forth and publicly tell why they have used this offensive depiction to ridicule President Obama.”

Well, Mr. Hutchinson – I don’t know who did it – but as to why – perhaps it has something to do with Obama’s policies?  Just guessing.

Update the II:

Michelle Malkin has other examples, including several “assassination chic” images of Bush.  Think of the screams if someone ever dares to make fun of Obama by showing him with a gun pointed at him – the howls of “racist” will be loud enough to raise the dead.  Obama and his Obama-bots need to understand that the office of PotUS is not an affirmative action job.  You can’t scream “racist” every time someone criticizes dear leader’s policies, or actions, or plans for our country.
